Unfortunately there hasn’t been enough control on
the quality standards of olive oil. Many large brands, often available in
supermarkets around the world have tampered with the olive oil or blended
different qualities to create olive oil that is just barely aloud
to be labeled extra virgin.
At Neolea we comply with the highest industry
quality standards and additionally added some of our own. We solely select the highest
quality EVOO available of which each sample is tested both by us as well as a 3rd
party chemical lab and organoleptic testing panel. We solely bottle 100% pure
and fresh EVOO and never blend different qualities or harvest seasons.
each bottling batch, Neolea EVOO undergoes a series of quality tests and the
results of these tests are sent with each shipment to our international
If you’re reading this, it means you’re aware of
what you eat and why you eat it. About 50% of people use olive oil
because their recipe says so and select any type they can find. 90% of those
people cannot describe the flavor of true EVOO as they have most likely never
tried it. If you belong to the 50% that is aware of the quality, flavor and health
aspects of what you eat, than we’re a match!
EVOO is the only category of olive oil that can offer true flavor as well as health benefits among others, in
the form of phenolic acid.
Yes you can. It’s an industry created myth that you
can’t use EVOO for frying. Please be aware that we are talking about SHALLOW
FRYING here. Neolea
has an extremely low acidity level which actually allows for a higher smoke
point of the olive oil which makes it withstand higher temperatures even
is cold extracted in order to maintain all healthy nutrients as well as flavor
and aroma. When heating up Neolea for shallow frying, you will lose some of
these aspects. We recommend finishing each dish with a swirl of Neolea once
it’s ready to be served for the best flavor and aromatic experience.
Yes it does. Although
it is the most tasty and healthy one
of fats, it is still a fat that eventually turns rancid. Depending on
the quality of the production, the storage environment and time, EVOO
will be fresh for a longer period.
EVOO therefore has a certain lifespan and
although we are legally bound to adding a Best Before Date of 18 Months period
from bottling, we live from harvest to harvest. The wild character of freshly
harvested EVOO and the milder character of EVOO that has been bottled 6 months
ago all inspire us to use these flavors in a different way. Instead of
tampering with the olive oil to always have it taste the same, we embrace its
character of each period and celebrate the new harvest as if it’s a new born.
The main main enemies of any EVOO are, UV light, oxygen
and large changes in temperature. All these aspects can contribute to an
oxidation process which in turn will eventually make you EVOO lose all its
magic power. Although we bottle Neolea with extremely low temperatures and our
bottle protects the EVOO from most UV light, keeping the bottle out of the direct
sunlight and on a temperature of 18 degrees is ideal and will prolong its
Neolea adds flavor anywhere you want it. We all
know how to use EVOO on a salad or maybe for dipping some bread as a side dish or
starter but there is still so much to discover and explore. Let’s stay in touch
and we will inspire you to use Neolea in ways you never could have imagined. Your friends will thank you for it! Follow us on Facebook and
